Posted on 06/24/2019 10:49:27 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Independent journalist Matt Kennard has published a number of documents starkly revealing the degree to which The Guardian has been compromised by British security services, and the impact this relationship has on its reporting of key issues.
The newspaper has long sought to present itself - to readers and advertisers alike - as Britains foremost anti-establishment outlet, and took a leading role in reporting on the mass WikiLeaks cable dump in 2010, and the Edward Snowden leaks in 2013, garnering widespread praise and several prestigious journalism awards in the process.
In the latter case, the The Guardians dissident credentials were greatly enhanced when in July that year the UK government ordered its then-Editor Alan Rusbridger to destroy hard drives containing the numerous internal NSA and GCHQ files released by Snowden, and GCHQ agents duly visited the the newspapers offices to oversee the destruction. Videos of the carnage - conducted via angle-grinder - set to ominous music and interspersed with footage of Rusbridger condemning the censorship were shared widely online.

Isn’t the Guardian owned in part by Iranian/Frenchman/UScit Pierre Omidyar?
Speaking of 2013:
Text messages between Andrew McCabe, the deputy director of the FBI at the time, and Jeremy Fleming, his then counterpart at MI5, now the head of GCHQ, also reveal their mutual surprise at the result of the EU referendum, which some US officials regarded as a wake-up call, according to a person familiar with the matter.....
In one exchange in August 2016, Fleming noted that members of the FBI and MI5 had met on our strange situation, a veiled reference to discussions about Russian activities, according to the source. In his text message about the August 2016 meeting, Fleming appeared to be making a reference to Peter Strzok, a senior FBI official who travelled to London that month to meet the Australian diplomat Alexander Downer. Downer had agreed to speak with the FBI about a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, who had told him that Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee in the race....
During his period as a senior official at MI5, Fleming served as director for intelligence collection and led MI5s preparations for the 2012 Olympics. He was appointed deputy director of MI5 in 2013. -----Secret texts cast light on UK's early role in Trump-Russia inquiry, MSN, Posted by outpostinmass2
